Y2K and more

#1

Post by soumya-8974 » Fri Feb 22, 2019 14:54

Tell me the approximate date of this picture:
Bug_de_l_an_2000.jpg
The answer is 3 January 1900 12:09 Paris Standard Time, right? The actual answer is 3 January 2000 12:09 Paris Standard Time.
So, what happened?
Wikipedia wrote:The Year 2000 problem, also known as the Y2K problem, the Millennium bug, the Y2K bug, or Y2K, is a class of computer bugs related to the formatting and storage of calendar data for dates beginning in the year 2000. Problems were anticipated, and arose, because many programs represented four-digit years with only the final two digits — making the year 2000 indistinguishable from 1900. The assumption of a twentieth-century date in such programs could cause various errors, such as the incorrect display of dates and the inaccurate ordering of automated dated records or real-time events.
I've found another date bug:
Wikipedia wrote:Even before 1 January 2000 arrived, there were also some worries about 9 September 1999 (albeit less than those generated by Y2K). Because this date could also be written in the numeric format 9/9/99, it could have conflicted with the date value "9999," frequently used to specify an unknown date. It was thus possible that database programs might act on the records containing unknown dates on that day. Data entry operators commonly entered "9999" into required fields for an unknown future date, (e.g., a termination date for cable television or telephone service), in order to process computer forms using CICS software. Somewhat similar to this is the end-of-file code "9999," used in older programming languages. While fears arose that some programs might unexpectedly terminate on that date, the bug was more likely to confuse computer operators than machines.

Wrong. We won't have this problem until 2038. Same error will happen. It's more dangerous than Y2K, but there are already fixes to computer systens that won't allow for that to happen.

And that is only for 32-bit architectures.

64-bit storages can run even longer than 10,000! But the year 10,000 can make few problems with DDMMYYYY. The year database can fit maximum 4 digits, not 5.

A weird UK calendar of 1752

#9

Post by soumya-8974 » Sun Mar 24, 2019 19:03

See this calendar:
United Kingdom 1752.pdf
(88.49 KiB) Downloaded 14 times
You may see that it is fine except...ember! 2 September is succeeded by 14 September!! Where are the 11 days?
Actually, they removed 11 days to align the Spring Equinox from 10 March to 21 March. Tell me why?
...I can only give you one hint that the calendar changed the leap-year system.

@CommanderABab, Why do you merge the Y2K with the 1752 UK calendar topic?

Go steal wikipedia pages somewhere else I think you have the Y2K bug in your brain, stop pretending to be a smart when you are not.

You think you know when you know nothing, fool.
I rarely make plugins now, but I still make them in spare time.

Y2K is past and the topics both deal with calendars.
